10:01pm
we know. do amerin muims need a reality check. even more interesting, the person asking is a muslim a conversationou need to hear this hour. good evening, everyone. i'm don lemon. thanks for joining us. we start tonight in san bruno, cafornia, where there are new questions about that gas pipeline that exploded on thursday killing at least four people. some are still missing. cnn has obtained a document from the owner, pg & e, saying the pipeline had a relatively high risk and likelihood of failure. some residents were escorted back to their homes today to see the damage to their neighborhood. those with the most dadly damaged homes are still being kept away. cnn's ted rowland went along with one family left speechless by the devastation. >> holy [ bleep ]. what the [ bleep ] is that? >> reporter: this incredible home video was captured moments after the explosion from a house balcony just behind the gas
10:02pm
pipe. the voice you hear belongs to walter mccaffrey. he had one hand on his video camera, the other on his phonei telling his wife not to come home with their three children. this is the view from that deck now. walter and his wife werey allowd back unday aernoon to their house for the first time since the explosion. >> just looking at all this, i mean, i saw all this from the news. being here and the first time coming up here and looking at all this, it was just -- there's no words. i can't really explain. >> reporter: teams are still sifting through ash searching for remains of people still listed as missing. as investigators try to learn what caused the explosion, questions have surfaced about the section of pipe that blew. a pg & e document outlining costs to replace the pipe says, quote, the likelihood of a fact yur makes the risk of a failure at this location unacceptably high. that doesn't mean pg & e thought
10:03pm
there was a chance the pipe could explode, but mark tony, he kpaektive director of the consumer watchdog group utility reform network says it's important if reports that residents smelled gas before the explos,ion are true. >> nobody, including pg & e could have imagined somethingles horrible as the san bruno fire and blast as happening. the fact remains when pg & e go the reports of gas leaks from several customers over several days, they should have realized that this was an area that was old that was at high risk, that they identified as high risk
10:04pm
joins us live. ted, is pg&e commenting? >> no, don. since the ntsb took over this investigation, &pg&e said becaue it's ongoing and we're not leading it, we can't comment. the first few days they had a lot to, saybut no comments. we just don't have their perspective as far as the pipe unfortunely. >> today, we're just getting word theumber of missing changed from six to four. what happened? >>ell, good news. this afternoon, at some point, the city of san bruno found two of the people that were reported potentially missing. so they are alive and well. so the leveldropped by two. still four confirmed dead. >> all right, cnn's ted rollins reporting from san bruno,
10:05pm
california to night. thank you, sir. after seeing the san bruno explosion, you may be wondering what's underneath your home? stick around and we'll show you where to go t find out if pipelines are in your neighborhood. that's half an hour on cnn. an american woman is hoping this is her last night in iranian custody. iranian officials are once again offeringel to release sharon shourd. they were detained after allegedly crossing over into airan. but iran wants a big chunk of bail money before letting her go. >> the families as they have been for months have been leaning on each other for support. this latest announcement about bail in the amount of $500,000 brings a whole new set of complications with it.mi and the family are reports that they're also indicted on spying charges. you will remember that the
10:06pm
family all along has flatly denied that they are spies and if they cross, the border, it s by accident. now, among those sorting through all of this is the swiss ambassador. since the united states has no diplomatic ties with, iran, the swiss government would likely be acting as intermediaries. the ambassador in teheran tells cnn that technicallies have been imposed by the prosecutor in iran and that all of those are being reviewed at this's time. it's also unclear where the money would come from. the families are keeping quiet about all of this. whether the dpunfunds would com from some other source is also not known. d as far as trade sanctions beina possible sticking point among others, there's talks of perhaps waivers balanced budget involv -- being involved that could clear up all of that. one spesman saying we're in a wait and see mode. we want all three released and returned ag nd president obama s said theame thing
10:07pm
consistently. later this mon, a u.n. general meets in new york and mahmoud ahmadinejad is expecting to be attending. there's speculation he might bring all three hikers with h. certainly, don, the families have been urging him for a humanitarian release. don? >> susan candiotti in new york. thank you for that. >> a desecration on 9/11. that's what a man said about the duelling rallies at ground zero. and he said he's worried americans are forgetting what 9/11 should stand for. plus hurricane igor is picking up steam. and it's time for you to be a part of this show, a part of conversation here. you can have you say. on to any of the special media sites you e right there and send us a comment. are you suffering from frequent heartburn ?

10:10pm
some people say the anniversary of september 11 was unlike the last eight. they feel the controversy of a proposed islamic center turned a day of mourning to a political football. one says a rally was a desecration to the meaning of september 11. he told me there's been a am9/1 amnesia in today's politics. >> one of the things that came out of that awful day wasn't just the beginning of a wider war we're still engaged in, but an awareusness that what unitess is fundamentally more important than those things that divide us as americans. and what we're seeing with the rise of partisan politics and an ugliness at some of these
10:11pm
rallies marks the fact that i think we're forgetting that again. the divisions that are deeply ivisive to americans, whether democrat or reblican, completely unimportant under the wider lens of the war we're in. that was an awareness that p really sunk into people after the attacks. >> what did you specifically see, john, at the rally -- at these rallies that made you use such harsh words? >> just on both sides, a lot of politicization, harshly political rhetoric, and a lot of, not just anger, but hate. keep in mind, one of the organizers of the big rally in the afternoon is somebody who has referred to president obama as the muslim in the white house over 250 times in her blog. there's an inherently partisan political nature of this. it's really a divisiveness. that's what we need to push against. when mccain and obama went to the spokenny together, that's the spirit of this dayp that w need to keep in our minds and hearts.
10:12pm
we're losing it. >> you're talking about the politicization of this. and yesterday i had a conversation here and everye agreed that everyo needs to take a step back and take a deep breath and not call people names and listen to both sides. now, in listening m to both sid, hat would mean that muslims would have to listen to the people who, youknow, don't want thise proposed mosqu and center near ground zero, and the same thing, the people who do want it would have to listen to the muslim community. i want you to take a listen to what was said this morning on "this week with christia christian amenpour. take a listen and we'll talk about it. >> one of the reasons they do have those anxieties is that motems have failed, moderate muslims have failed to make the face for why there is nothing to fear about islam. when major nadal hassan open fires on a groupf fellow fold
10:13pm
sold jers and the first thing you hear out of the mouth of a moderate is please don't misunderstand, islam has nothing to do with this, you can't blame ordinary americans for scratching their heads and wondering what role does religion play here? >> does she have a point? and can you view this as a reaching across the aisle of sorts to say that there are regular americans, many of them who are not racist and who are not anti-islam who have questions and concerns about islam? >> absolutely. she makes an important point and a brave point. we're at war with islamic terrorists but we have never been in a war against islam. if we're going to be a civil society and create an example for the world, we need to always remember that greatness flows from o goodness. good people can disagree about the mosque and many other things.
10:14pm
that's the tone we need to set. and remember niezing the reality that we're stilat war. but we have not and have never been at war with islam. >> your book is called "wing nuts -- how the lunatic fringe is hijacking america." i have to ask you about pasto terry jones. go. >> well look, that's a great example ofis etremists have a disproportionate influence. this guy is fairly insignificant figure was able to hijack media and hijack the anniversary vournding inin inin ining 9/11. it's a good example and a cautionary tale of the way extremists are able to hijack rothe media with deeply disproportionate, you know, unpresentative statements. and that kind of ugliness too ten occupies our attention. we need to push back on that. >> you have some very, very smart points here. what do we do, besides, you know, going to each and every person's door to try to explain,
10:15pm
you know, to them about what islam exactly is, what do we do in this situation. >> i think we need to recognize there's a wider war between freedom and fundamentalism around the world an each of us has an obligation as americans to try to be the change we want to be and stand up to extremism wherever and whenever we see it. if americans do that, we can help turn the tide and stop these extremists from whatever form they might range in. from hijacking our debates. and we need recognize this is a wider war. it's the forces of freedom >> s the forces of fundamentalists. three days after a gas line and explosion killed four people anddevastated a san francisco suburb, you may be wondering how safe is your neighborhood. coming up, a look at the hidden dangers that may be underour home. plus, uld this man soon be the next speaker of the house? some republicans are predicting

>> time now to preview the week in politics. there could be a big bre in a washington standoff. house minority leader john boehner now saw says he would vote with president obama to extend the bush tax cuts for everyone but theop wealthy, but >>ly if he had no other option. >> if the only option i have is to vote for some of those tax reductions, i'll vote for them. but i've been making thhse poin now for months that we need to extend all the current rates for all americans. if we want to get our economy going again and we want to get jobs in america. >> mark preston has put on a jacket now from his earlier reports and he joins me. hnoehner has been asking for the tax cuts to be applied to
10:20pm
everyone including thewh wealth. what's snup. >> the republicans have been forceful saying presidenama cannot let the tax cuts expire. but president obama came out and was very critical of john boehner and the republicans just a couple of days ago. what we saw today is john boehner coming out and saying look, bottom line, if this is my only option, this is what i'm going to do. and, you know, his aids put out a statement -- let me just read you a line on this statement to show you why john boehner made this comment today. it said boehner's comments deprivedto president obama of t ability to continue making false claims about where republicans standn these critical issues. bottom line, rocepublicans don' want democrats to say republicans are anti-taxes for the middle classes. anti-tax cuts. >> tough words. and git's only going to get tougher leading up to the elections in november. so it's going to be a busy week in politics. give us a highlight. >> well, you know, extremely busy week. let's start off with tuesday, don.

>> another gas explosion in california is raising questions about the massive network of oil and gas pipelines that chris cross the country. thers more than 2.3 million miles of pipe, much of it put in, well, decades ago. i asked dan weiss, a member of the georgia public service commission about the aging infrastructure and what kind of questions we should be asking the people in charge. >> in the country, there isuc a aging infrastructure, but in many jurisdictions, they are upgrading. in georgia, that's one of the things we've continued to do. in the last decade, we've replace the about 90% of the infrastructure in our state.but but in other parts of the country, they probably have not
10:33pm
been as aggressive but it's still a safe delivery system. >> here in georgia you said they replaced a lot, but what's being ane around the country to address this issue? >> again, it's a partnership between the localie utilities, e jurisdictions and the federal jurisdiction that has some oversight over the pipeles in that area. >> so as i'm walking in my neighborhood this weekend and people are saying oh, my gosh, that explosion, we live in an old historic neighborhood. what kind of questions should we will asking our city officials? our state officials about this? >> clearly, you should start with your public service commission. you need to ask how old is the infrastructure? how old are the pipes? have they been replaced? are they being replaced? and pay attention in that way. at the se time, you can always be an observant citizen as well. >> we talked about the gas pipe, the lineshat run under the country. we said there's 2.3 million miles. the bulk in louisiana and texasi
10:34pm
obviously we get a lot of our oil from there. so l k at all of this. and, you know, we cover these stories all the time about gas explosions. you don't know. is it -- we always say in the news, could it happen here? well, it could. >> it could. there's always a possibility of that. and that's one of e things that individual jurz dibs aisdi are working so hard to grade these aging systems. that's what we do and many other states with appropriate leadership can do, but there's a cost assocted with it. so if there's an aging infrastructure in san bruno and it a 60 or 70-year-old system, you've got to look to utilities and the state public sfgs commission. >> here's the thing. you smell gas. it's the additive they put in there so you can smell it, srrect? >> exactly. >> so you smell it all the time and you don't think twice. what do you do now if you smell gas. i'm sure more people if they're paying attention to the news are going to be calling saying hey, i smell gas. >> there's a catch phrase, smell
10:35pm
gas, act fast. call 911. >> really? >> absolutely. if you smell gas, don't play around with it. get it done. >> we wa to help you out here and bring is this home for you s what happened. the san bruno blast happened when a 30-inch pipeline exploded. match natural gas pouring out of that. then if it explodes -- there are 2.5 million miles of pipeline in the country. that's enough to circle the earth 100 times. you can get a i sense of how mu it is on this map. look at all of that. you can see the blue and yellow. the blue states, that'sun pipelines that run through multiple states. and then there's the red ones as well. this website, the one right here, take a look at that one. that website is a national pipeline mapping system that litlets you see the pipelines in your area. and also here, this one talks
10:36pm
about integrity. you can search by county, and we ecked out dallas, texas, for instance. the green lines are gas transmission lines an the red lines areipelines that carry hardous liquids. let's go to number four now. on this website, you can even see and put in your street address here as we did for the cnn location. and there are no pipelines that show uere are here. now, it's important to ne that itea doesn't mean that there aren't any pipelines in cnn's neighborhood. the map only shows pipelines that fall under the federal government's jurisdiction. so gas lines that provide directly to your house do not show up on this map. local officials need to do more digging. and check this one out. it's a lot of information. so if you want to go, go to our blog and you can find a link to all of eathis. it will really help you out if you have concerns. i know my neighbors in my
